For Daniel Webster, the devil is in the details.


/huh?

I want all these farkers that oppose Obamacare to go out and get their own damn insurance on the private market.  They've got gold plated health care for life, paid for by US taxpayers.  They clearly need a dose of reality.

So, the GOP's nightmare about Obamacare acceptance is coming true.

Cool.

You wait - it won't be 10 years before Fark IndemendentsTM are complaining it's called "Obamacare."

Nice that the people are finally starting to call those bastards out.  Now let's see if he takes the message back to DC or if he needs to be voted out of office before he wakes up.

FTFA: A recent poll from the Heritage Foundation's advocacy arm that was ostensibly meant to show Obamacare's unpopularity by over-surveying Republicans inadvertently showed that it is actually popular.

I love that I have to dig to a Salon article to get the actual Heritage Foundation survey. Yes, Obamacare is so popular amongst the survey's respondents that 59.8% are OK with a "TEMPORARY SLOWDOWN IN NON-ESSENTIAL FEDERAL GOVERNMENT OPERATIONS, WHICH STILL LEFT ALL ESSENTIAL GOVERNMENT SERVICES RUNNING". (sorry about the caps, I just copied-and-pasted from the survey results) Aka, that "government shutdown" everyone's talking about.
 
2013-08-19 12:04:40 PM
I guess I forgot to add:  so the Heritage Foundation ran a survey in predominantly-Republican districts and got these results.

My conclusions:

a.  TFA is misleading, at least in the place I chose to pick apart.
2.  The survey, either way you slice it, is just bologna.

Mmm.  Bologna.  I guess I should go get lunch.

In 15 years they probably will try and say that this was the Republican response to "Hillarycare" in the '90s, so really it should be called "Newtcare" and you're welcome.

It was very disrespectful of those congressman's constituents to hold him accountable for voting against their interests and defending those votes with lies.

What's hilarious about this entire thing is how he mocks high deductible insurance plans that don't cover everything with low premiums.  Moron!  That's the Republican plan!  They've been screaming for years about implementing just that as a panacea to health care costs.  It's the concept of HSAs; cost shifting to the patient rather than the insurance company.  All of a sudden, though, these things are the freakin' devil and the Republican's own talking points become the antithesis to good policy.  Imagine that.

All of Congress still gets their gold-plated health insurance.  They should be more than willing to eat their own dog food.

Because they're doormats by and large, and they think everyone else should be, too. They think the only choose is who wipes their feet on you, not whether you should be an ignorant doormat in the first place. They revere the sociopaths they perceive as their 'betters' almost with religious fervor. It's sickening.

It's just really strange to watch though. They'll fight reasonable government regulation tooth and claw but will let a corporation screw them over 5 ways to Sunday and they act as if it's some sort of honor. Then loudly claim that they enjoyed the experience.

Yeah, maybe they should just admit they're masochists and join a local dungeon. Then they at least wouldn't be so damn repressed and they could lighten up on some of their social conservatism at least

Well, the party **did** change, but it started changing with Reagan. Bush Sr. looks like a flippin' statesman for the ages compared to his progeny, but he was the second nail after Ronnie The Saint gibbered his way out of office.

Well, some of them are sociopathic, of course, in that they can't empathize unless it happens to them. Like Senator Portman. But the truth is that many of them damn well know but don't care. All they see is a system that might require another $10 from them in taxes. $10 they'd rather have, even if it means trodding past a few homeless people on their way to buy a happy meal. (Not that they would actually leave their gated communities.)

Yeah, even my employer paid healthcare at a large, global company cost more than that for my family and I'll bet I had higher copays and deductibles than congress' plans, too.

Obamacare is mandated "free market" participation in the health care industry. It should be a Republican dream, in that it pushes the prospect of single payer or public option health care decades down the road. I have no idea why the right wing is upset about this. They should claim this as a huge Republican victory. It's just mind boggling how hard they're railing aginst their own idea because Obama and a Democratic congress implemented it. It's actually sort of infuriating

.You guys actually won on the health care issue. YOU WON!!!

If the GOP would just admit that they don't give a damn about anyone but the rich and/or evangelical Christians then we could sit down and discuss policy issues. It's the lying that always gets me tho. They pretend to care about the little guy or free markets...the GOP doesn't give a damn about that sort of thing.

As do all federal employees.  It's capitalism at work:  take a massive number of potential customers and tell the businesses to be reasonable or else they can't sell to those customers, and - boom - reasonable rates.  The whole point of the Obamacare exchanges (which Members of Congress will enter) is that you shouldn't have to work for the feds in order to get good rates.

Not a single one of those farks would even notice the expense. That would only reinforce the idea that anyone can afford it. Remember, these derploads are upset that households recieving SNAP almost all have refrigerators, thus proving they don't need assustance.
